Waiting in line at the dock to drive our trusty KIA on board and cross the St Lawrence Seaway to Wolfe Island, Ontario.
Cape Vincent is a sweet little town with old brick homes and shady streets.....pretty flowers greeted us as we pulled first in line to get on the ferry, but first, a quick visit to the visitors center, the building in back with the flags.
One lovely rose beside the car as we waited for the ferry to come in sight.
We have such fun going to Canada this way, and riding the little ferries. The day had become gloriously warm, with no wind, so unlike similar rough crossings, we were in for a smooth and beautiful trip.
The ferry holds about 4 cars, but this day there were only 2.
Leaving the dock....happy, happy!
We reached the Wolfe Island tiny customs dock in about 15 minutes, and breezed through after showing out passports. In another 15 minutes we were in the tiny village of Wolfe Island, stopped in the great bakery for LM to acquire a coffee and a snack, then got in line to board the huge car ferry for Kingston, Ontario. There are no photos because we pulled the car on board, were parked in a sunny spot near the front, and almost immediately fell asleep. We woke up when the ship docked. The night before and early morning rainy drive began to catch up with us.
Our lodgings, The Fox Motor Inn - Napanee Ontario. Such a pretty very old town, filled with lovely old homes, parks and a seeming to be thriving economy.
It was about 3:30 pm when we found ourselves in this very comfy and clean room, and the temptation to collapse into sleep was only overridden by the fact that we were beyond hungry, having not stopped for lunch.
The motel office highly recommended we head to The Waterfront for lunch. The day could not have been more perfect to dine outside, under a beautiful canopy of trees, along the banks of the Napanee River. We were warmly greeted and felt like we were in a charming French Cafe. Lunch was beautifully served, and we ate with relish. Boats pulled up to the dock beside us and others came in to dine, although it was really quiet and peaceful, the lunch crowd having departed.
Tired face, but oh, so happy. We kept laughing about the events of the night before, no sleep, etc.
The Waterfront outdoor space.....
This folk art piece shows a nice view of the restaurant....a huge old stone mill building.
